Tom Watson wins the Senior PGA Championship

Tom Watson wins the 2011 Senior PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club

He may be 61 years old young now, but watching Tom Watson win never gets old. On Sunday, Mr. Watson became the second oldest player to ever win the Senior PGA and did so in dramatic fashion with a three-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole. “This is what I’m out here to do, to compete and win,” he said.  Watson shot a 2-under 70 in the final round and was the only player in the field with all four rounds under par (70-70-68-70).  He earned $360,000 for the win and took home the Alfred S. Bourne Trophy.

“When you’re walking up the 18th hole and you have a chance to win a tournament like this, you’re nervous,” Watson said. “You’re nervous. But you’ve been there before. And I said, ‘okay, I know that level of feeling in my gut and now let’s go take care of business.’” This was the second time he’s won the Senior PGA adding to a career record on the Champions Tour with 14 wins.
